it’s a blizzard!

a snowy day on Lake MountainYesterday was Melbourne’s coldest August day in 26 years. 100km/h winds on the bay, trees blown over, local flooding etc. and where did we spend it? At the snow, where else?

It was sensational! I have never seen snow like it – hanging thick in the trees, deep drifts everywhere. The best skiing snow I’ve ever been on. It was busy, cold, wet and a lot of fun! Photos here.

Not quite so much fun getting off the mountain when a car that ran off the road turned the road into a parking lot and the half-hour trip to Marysville took 2 hours, but you can’t have it all.
